Setting The Table: Part Three - Tea Lights and Votives
With their small size and ability to fit into a number of different candle holders, tea lights and votives are among the most versatile candles you can use in a table setting.
Sometimes a table arrangement can be elegant in its simplicity. You don't need to invest in high end table decor to create a look that makes an impression. The key to making a stripped-down design work is by mixing in a variety of materials that complement one another and together, create a cohesive look. Natural textures like pine and berries contrast glass candleholders for a simple yet warm option. Finish with a sprinkle of confetti for a hint of sparkle.
Make the Candle the Star
Rather than designing an elaborate centerpiece for your tablescape, incorporate a touch of illumination on every place setting by starting with a votive or tea light at the center of the plate. Around it, add touches that speak to the season - apples, pears, leaves, or any elements that add color and work with the dinner you're about to serve. This deconstructed take on the classic centerpiece gives a modern minimal vibe that sets the stage for an amazing meal.
No matter what type of tablescape design you choose, working with an open flame isn't ideal when you have kids, pets, and decorative materials in the mix. Switching to flameless LED tea lights and votive candles lets you get creative without worrying about dripping wax or risk.
